Calendar - New Calendar

ResBook has introduced a brand new calendar for viewing and managing your bookings. This new calendar functions much the same as the old calendar, however with a few cosmetic changes and the inclusion of new features.


Fixed Calendar Heading


The first change has been to fix the calendar bar across the top of your screen. This means that as you scroll down the page the calendar will stay with you the whole time, making it easier to view dates alongside bookings.


Easily Identified Arrivals and Departures


One of the significant changes is the re-positioning of a booking by highlighting half the date of arrival and half the date of departure. At a glance, you can now see which date a guest is arriving and which date they're departing.   


Booking Signals


The new calendar now uses icons to indicate various important signals relating to a booking. These are summarized as follows:

This icon indicates that there is an alert attached to the booking.
This icon shows a stock unit is a virtual unit or that part of a booking is booked in a virtual unit.
This icon indicates that a wait-listed booking is behind the active booking.
This icon is used to show that the booking has come through an agent.
The grey boxes represent a virtual stock unit or suggest part of a booking is booked as a virtual unit.
This yellow line indicates a waitlisted booking is behind the active booking.
These colors depend on the user preferences defined in Calendar Settings and are displayed as a key in the upper left corner of the new calendar.


Example of the new calendar design:




Booking Info Window
 

This has been updated to include a lot more information about your booking without having to actually open the booking.

The option of Guest details and Booking overview will be available once clicking on the specific booking in the calendar. It includes booking details, booking value, any services applied, any wait-listed bookings, and important notes. In addition, the [Guest Details] button allows you to quickly view the contact details of your guest.

Mobile Improvements

When accessing the desktop version of ResBook on mobile, the new calendar is functional and does allow you to view booking details, guest information and tap to call phone numbers. The calendar also works perfectly well on tablet devices in landscape orientation. 


The second option is to use the ResBook mobile app to access booking information and create a new booking. For more information on our Mobile App visit the ResBook Mobile section.
